Sunday 18th May

The walk is 24.5 miles long and takes in over 5,000 feet of climbing.

Nine club members and six friends successfully completed the walk in well under the 12 hour target. The weather was kind to us, staying relatively cool and dry. The conditions underfoot were also favorable.   

The 3 Peaks Walk web site describes the walk as "covering a variety of terrain, and even though the paths have been improved immensely over recent years, certain sections can still be very boggy and energy sapping. By tradition, the walk must be completed within 12 hours for you to be able to join the "Three Peaks of Yorkshire Club". To be eligible for membership, you must book out and book in again at the Pen-y-ghent Café in Horton-in-Ribblesdale, which at the time of writing is open every day apart from Tuesdays. This also enables you to avail yourself of the safety service that the Café provides. If you complete the walk within 12 hours, and have used the antique clocking machine in the Café, you will be invited to join the "Three Peaks of Yorkshire Club"."
